First to Review

This Old Synagogue, one of the few preserved medieval synagogues in Europe was restored and then reopened in 2009, points to Erfurt's role as one of medieval German's most influential Jewish communities. This synagogue was situated on the "via regia" which was one of the major European trade routes located very close to the town hall and the Merchants Bridge.
and the town hall. Many parts of the structure still remain today, including all four thick outer walls, the Roman­esque gemel window, the Gothic rose window and the entrance to the synagogue room. Among the items on display include about 6,000 works from goldsmiths from the 13th and 14th centuries, 3,140 silver coins, and 14 silver ingots. A 13th/14th century mikveh was excavated nearby. There's also two Jewish cemeteries.
